Ten Simple Steps To A Happier Life

By Glen Hitchcock
1. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and start counting your blessings. (Psalm 68:19) 2. Don’t worry about what everyone else is doing wrong. Just make sure YOU keep doing what is right. (Philippians 4:8) 3. Perform one totally selfless act each and every day. And don’t tell anyone about it. (Galatians 6:10) 4. Pray without ceasing. (1 Thessalonians 5:17) 5. Let others be right once in a while, and sometimes even let them be wrong without correcting them. (Ephesians 4:21-32) 6. Take care of yourself. Eat right, exercise, and get plenty of sleep. Your body can’t function at the best of its ability (as God intends) if you won’t let it. (1 Corinthians 6:19,20) 7. Make a vow to be kind in all situations. There are only two choices: kind or un-kind. Why not choose kindness? (Ephesians 4:31. Romans 12:21) 8. Treat your loved ones like there is no tomorrow. There may not be. (James 4:14) 9. Listen more than you talk. (You’ll be surprised at what you learn.) (James 1:19) 10.Take pleasure in the small things of life. (A good book, a jigsaw puzzle, a cup of coffee, the sound of a child’s laughter, the glory of God’s creation all around us.) (Zechariah 4:10)
